NMS and Ciscoworks discovery

Unanswered Question
May 9th, 2007

Hi folks,

can you advise, I know that Campus mnager does device discovery but can it import discovery from a 3rd party NMS ie HP NNM instead otherwise you'll end up with both NMS and CWKS doing the same thing?



I have this problem too.

Hi Tony.

You can absolutely import devices from HPOV NNM into the DCR (Device Credential Repository) of LMS. You can do it either by selecting the 'bulk import' button (under Common Services >Device Credentials > Device Management) to import devices from HP Openview, or you can do it through the dcrcli on the LMS server.

Also, there isn't a lot of overlap between NNM and Ciscoworks. Many customers use both in the same network as they complement each-other in capabilities.

Finally, for LMS issues, you might want to post on the Network Management forum under "Network Infrastructure" here in the left-hand column.

Thanks, and HTH,
